filter out alarms

I'm trying to filter out an alarm were getting frequently from the nas - however my pre-proc rule doesn't seem to be working. 

What am I missing here?


In the nas, I have a pre-processing rule (type=invisible) with message string = *blocksize*, 

this is to ignore alarms from nas that say "Auto-adjusted replication blocksize..."


Release : 20.3 and later

Component : UIM NAS


The client was using the ability to set the visibility boolean flag to true or false.

not using the pre-processing rule to exclude which drops the alarm.


Setting the invisible flag only sets a bit value on the alarm to true or false. 

You can check IM and USM alarms to show invisible alarms so if you are showing invisible alarms, which is on by default, you will still see the alarm. 


If you want to drop the alarms please set the pre-pre-processing rule to exclude.
